What is CNN going to do for news if they get rid of Trump?

Right now Trump takes up maybe 90% of their entire day. The same stuff repeated over and over again. Very little actual "news", as in new stuff, every hour. This is the "most trusted name in news"? I don't see it.

What sensational stuff will they invent after Trump is gone? CNN has become the super market tabloid of the news programs. It must work for them.

They will have to go back to showing open stretches of ocean for hours at a time and having their guest get in a fist fight about whether the plastic bag floating out their could have come from the missing Malaysian air liner. 

Anyway, given that CNN is 90% commercial breaks, even 90% trump is really just 9% of the total time.  I don't know how you can be the most trusted name in news when 90% of your air time is created by Madison Avenue advertising firms.

Your 50% is an under estimation here in Europe if you check out the American news in its papers, it is about 75%. Probably because the results of Trump´s actions are more potentially dangerous then mud slides in California, and  things that affect the rest of the world.

Not surprising.

My honest opinion, CNN isn't even liberal. They just give off the appearances of liberalism.

Let me tell you a secret about the liberal media: There isn't one. There's a conservative media and a conspiracy media. Look how many more Republicans are invited onto Sun. news shows to make their case

Look how much the liberal media spent reporting on every alleged scandal Hillary was accused of by conspiracy nuts who believe she murders people in her basement. Count how many times they said "giving off appearances of" and the like

"Giving off appearances" means no facts no story. Any decent high school paper would fire an idiot who wrote "appearance" stories. But our liberal media printed them by the truckload because they wanted Trump to win

Oh they throw liberals a bone by reporting what Trump says on Twitter. But here's the thing liberal media doesn't tell you: #### that matters

They played up the incident with the disabled reporter but refused to tell you about how terrible high-risk pools are. It took disabled people being arrested on Capitol Hill for the "liberal" media to explain them.

If we had a liberal media, an actual liberal media, you would have seen wall-to-wall high-risk pool horror stories. And there are a lot. A yuuuuuuuuuuuge amount.

CNN is the TV version of the grocery market checkout lane tabloid. They take a so-so headline and put out something sensational. Trump just plays into their goals so well.
